Registrations are now open for this year’s event, being held on Sunday 7 July 2019 from 10am to 4pm, which is set to be bigger and better than ever.

It is free to exhibit your classic vehicle at the Market Harborough Classic Car Show, but you must register beforehand at www.harborough.gov.uk/classiccarshow   

Previous year’s events have seen some of the most amazing retro cars, motorcycles, scooters and commercial vehicles from across the country lining the streets.

They'll also be stalls and activities, plus prizes for 'best in show' and other categories up for grabs if you enter a vehicle in the event.

Councillor Neil Bannister, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “Since its launch in 2016 this has been one of the biggest and most exciting events in the East Midlands. The show attracts thousands of people, and car enthusiasts, which helps boost tourism and showcase the district.  To make it a success again this year, we need people with vintage vehicles to register and make sure they’re part of this fantastic occasion.”

Local businesses and shops are encouraged to support the event the event in any way they can – by decorating their premises with bunting or in other ways. Email business@harborough.gov.uk if you would like to be more involved or help sponsor the event.
